And Liberia's tourist zones liave been .starving lo death for years, says Frank Smith executive vice president of tlie Travel and Convention As- socialion of Southern Alberta. He was commenting on Tour- Ism Minister Bob Dowling's an- nouncement that the provincial grant to this tourist zone for the year April 1972 lo March 1973 wi'.l lie up from last year. However, the menu Is getting better all the time, Mr. Smith sold, nosing that tlie increase ivas double last year's grant. Under an existing grant formula, this OTIC was eligible for said Mr. Smith. Alberta's new tourism direc lor Don Hayes, has said the existing formula structure will be looked at. Mr. Smith said, serious in- equities have resulted from the existing structure. Some tour- ist zones receive as liltle as a 20 cents per dollar spent gram equivalent from the province, while oilier areas received 100 per cent. Because public money Is be- ing dealtli with, a common formula bas to be devised from which both large and small tourist zones receive fair shares, he said. The government "must zero in all particular programs that might be common to all zones and support them." Wlnle the new provincial government is realizing the c-cciiomlc iinya-1 of tounsm, it still has a long way to go to support it, Mr. Smith said.

If he assigns 101) acres in his quota book, he is allowed to haul only the number of bushels per acre that tlie CWB allows. If this is not enough for a full trunk load, the farmer can eith- er haul half full or run the risk of over hauling his quota. If the latter is the case, the WB can actually, take his quota book away for H days j and take him to court. Tlie CWB now has taken '1.300 to quota permit hooks from farmers with con- tracts with WCSP and thc four cases are the first lo begin summons given lo the four farmers.
